As usual Nat and the team were excellent. Even Cathy who does accounts made me a cup of tea and chatted away to me. Nat got my car in for mot quicker than expected as 6 other jobs were in front of me which I appreciated. Please support this local, independent garage as you won't regret it.
Excellent service, had cambelt and water pump done.
Great service. Price as quoted and problem was dealt with very well.
Great customer service, prompt service, generally no complaints about the experience.
I booked my car in for an MOT, full service, timing belt replacement and water pump replacement. Great service, and friendly staff. All in all cost £460, great value for money and I will definitely use them again. Thanks!
Prompt, approachable, professional, and good value.
My choice of Niche Motors for a full service was based on their good reviews on this site. Having had a bad experience in the past - being charged for work that wasn't done, so I'm very suspicious now, and expressed my concerns to Dan when he recommended a new fuel filter and replacement anti-roll bar, doubling the originally quoted bill. I was able to see the removed, damaged part, and newly replaced part, and trusted Dan that all the filters had been changed, although I couldn't check for myself as I would liked to have done. I'm fussy, untrusting, and suspicious but I trust Dan and his team to have been true to his/their word, and would probably be a return customer.
excellent customer service job done quickly and efficiently

A head gasket is effectively a seal which is essential for maintaining the temperature and integrity of a car engine. It's a part responsible for sealing pressure within the engine as well as the distribution of oil and coolant.
Every time you turn on your engine the head gasket has to operate within very high temperatures and pressures, which is exactly what it is designed to do. The engine of your car needs to be cooled constantly as it relies on combustion for power and the head gasket is the core component in performing this job.
If the head gasket is damaged, the engine will quickly overheat and serious damage will be caused. Overheating in the engine of your car will lead to a loss of compression, the mixing of oil, water, coolant as well as a reduction in lubrication.
The head gasket is a very complex piece of equipment and so a variety of materials are needed to build it. It has to be able to withstand and function normally at extreme temperatures and pressure, it also needs to be resistant to all of the chemicals and oils which rush around your car engine.
As a result, each gasket from one car to the next is different as the demands of each engine are unique. Car manufacturers like Ford, Vauxhall and BMW spend millions of pounds every year in the research and development of head gaskets to help manage the pressure and cooling of engines.
Unfortunately, if you need a head gasket repairing, it will be on the more expensive side. However, if you follow the advice below you can learn how to recognise problems with your gasket before something serious happens.
There are other signs to look out for but unless you are a trained mechanic it will be difficult to spot them which is why it is so important that you have your car checked if you suspect there is an issue.
As mentioned above, if a head gasket blows, it can be a costly repair for you as a huge increase in temperature throughout the engine could very easily cause a range of other issues.
If you need a head gasket repair or if you think you might have an issue with the unit, it is vital that you pay attention to the issue, if you ignore the signs above and the gasket blows while you are driving this could cause serious threat to your safety.
A blown head gasket repair can be quite costly for any driver, no matter what car you drive. There is no easy head gasket fix and so you will need to get an experienced mechanic to take a look. The scale does vary for a head gasket repair when looking at different card brands. For a Mercedes, pricing is over £700 on average whereas for a Fiat the price is around £355 on average.
